Humble Talk Speaks For Itself

Bishop Fenelon
"I would warn you of the temptation of “humble talk”. It is so easy to talk in very humble ways simply because it sounds good. But it is far better to be humble and say nothing about it. The humility that can still talk needs to be carefully watched! The old self gets a lot of comfort out of what it says to itself."
Let Go, page 33

  1. Think it would have been easy to fool Bishop F.? He is just about my all-time favorite. Had we known each other, he probably would have deconstructed me daily. Peter
